The Danbury Youth Soccer Academy is designed to further enhance the development of U7 and U9 players within the in-house program that are interested in further developing their soccer skills. Those players that participate in the Academy will continue to train one night a week, play games with their in-house teams at the weekend and will also participate in the one night a week Academy session.
All sessions will be implemented by coaching staff that will follow the supervision of the Director of Coaching. Each session will be designed to enhance the individual player's technical abilities with an emphasis on individual and small group tactics. The goal of DYSC is to place our players into environments that are both fun and challenging with the player being able to discover and solve the problems that they will encounter during games. The Academy environment will allow players to develop technical skills, be creative, have freedom to experiment and gain an understanding of their role in small group activities both attacking and defending.
There will be no tryouts for the Academy program. Those players participating will be selected to participate in one home and one away "jamboree" tournament per year.
